Removal and Deprecation in MySQL 5.7
Employee_Team +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

With the shipment of the first release candidate (RC) of MySQL 5.7, the next major version of the server is rapidly shaping up. Over the course of the nearly two and a half years that have passed since 5.6 went GA, we have put a lot of work into streamlining the server code in order to ease the burden of developing and maintaining such a large product and codebase.

An important aspect of this work is deprecation and removal. To explain the terms, deprecating a feature means that we signal to the outside world that “this feature is available now, but it will be removed in a future release, so please adjust your use case …

Upgrading MySQL

Upgrading MySQL is a task that is almost inevitable if you have been managing a MySQL installation for any length of time. To accomplish that task, we have provided a utility and documentation to upgrade from one version of MySQL to another. The general recommendation is to perform the upgrade by stepping from one major release to the next, without …

Making the case to support +2 version upgrades
Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In the MySQL team, we have always had a requirement to support upgrades from one major version. For example:

  • Upgrading from MySQL 5.5 to 5.6 is supported.
  • Upgrading from MySQL 5.1 to 5.6 is not supported.

Downgrades are also supported for one major version. For example, if a user upgrades to 5.6 but discovers that it is not working as expected, they have the safety knowing that there is a way to step back to MySQL 5.5. This may come with some limits; for example when new features (such as new row formats or page …

How to change AWS instance sizes for your Galera Cluster and optimize performance
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

September 3, 2014 By Severalnines

Running your database cluster on AWS is a great way to adapt to changing workloads by adding/removing instances, or by scaling up/down each instance. At Severalnines, we talk much more about scale-out than scale up, but there are cases where you might want to scale up an instance instead of scaling out. 

In this post, we’ll show you how to change instance sizes with respect to RAM, CPU and IOPS, and how to tune your Galera nodes accordingly. Moreover, this post assumes that …

Suggestions for transitioning into Strict SQL-Mode
Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

As MySQL 5.6 now enables the SQL Mode STRICT_TRANS_TABLES for new installations, I have been running into users who have been upgrading from previous versions, and not quite sure how to test their application for compatibility with this new default.

For some applications converting warnings to errors presents an unknown-unknown, in that the operators of the system can not easily detect what may break. Certainly many deployments will have QA environments, but there is always some fear production queries are just a little bit different.

Since sql_mode is configurable on a per-session basis, there are some strategies …

Patch Updates and New Version Upgrades of your Database Clusters
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

October 1, 2013 By Severalnines

 

Database vendors regularly issue critical patch updates to address software bugs or known vulnerabilities, but for a variety of reasons, organizations are often unable to install them in a timely manner, if at all. Evidence suggests that companies are actually getting worse at patching databases, with an increased number violating compliance standards and governance policies1.

Patching that require database downtime would be of extreme concern in a 24*7 environment, however most cluster …

On operating system upgrades and a packager’s nightmare
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

A fairy tale

Once upon a time I did an operating system upgrade, a minor one that should do no harm, but just get me up to date by fixing any bugs in the version I had been using. It seemed like a good idea.

All seemed to be fine. I use a package provided by an external vendor and not the one produced by the operating system provider as this vendor provides a newer version of the package and I need that. The vendor has to make his package fit in the os environment his package is built for and normally does a pretty good job.

I use automation to build my systems and when I built a new one some issues …
